Canine Performance Q&A | Dog Board & Train Programs


Canine Performance Dog Trainer Natalie Dobkins talks to YOLO PUP LA and Ryka the Belgian Malinois about her approach to helping dogs and owners with behavioral issues. Canine Performance discusses their Board and Train program and her extensive online training course. The board and train program works by removing the pup from the home and placing them in a new location to teach good behavior and train out the negative! Length of stay depends on owner’s goals. We love her customized approach.
